Start of research into new sludge separation technique

February 18, 2018

Brightwork will test a new technique for advanced sludge separation. For this purpose a pilot plant will be used at the Water Application Centre in Leeuwarden, where research will take place during six months in 2018.

Optimisation model for sludge flows - Waternet

August 13, 2017

At the Amsterdam West wastewater treatment plant the sewage sludge from the 12 wastewater treatment plants managed by Waternet is processed. The sludge is digested, dewatered and then incinerated at the AEB. Because of the discontinuation of the digester on the Hilversum sewage station (where the sludge from the Blaricum and Huizen sewage stations was also digestered) the supply of the digester on Amsterdam has increased.

CADoS - Cellulose Assisted Dewatering of Sludge

August 14, 2017

The idea for this development project is based on the efficient separation of cellulose fibres from raw wastewater and the use of these fibres for the dewatering of surplus sludge. This form of raw material reuse leads to a number of advantages: simple sludge dewatering, less use of chemicals, lower energy consumption and fewer sludge transports.
